The deploy tool won't generate the JBoss deployment descriptors. Have you considered XDoclet? You can find it at the SourceForge site currently.
Thanks for your reply.
I've briefly looked at xDoclet. It came with the JBoss IDE as a plugin for Eclipse. Is it difficult to use or is fairly easy to learn?
The documentation for set up is sparse. The tag management is fairly easy but you need to have some idea of what the deployment descriptors should contain. The documentation on tags is fairly good. There is a starter at http://www.amitysolutions.com.au/documents/JBossJNDI-technote.pdf that should give you an idea of what XDoclet does, how to set it up and the basic descriptors necessary for standard operations. See if that is enough to give you a feel for the ease of use.
